Conley Terminal

Connecting New England with the World

The Port of Boston’s Conley Terminal – operated by Massport – is the only full-service container terminal in New England. Conley Terminal currently serves seven (7) of the world’s top container lines (MSC, COSCO Shipping, “K” Line, Yang Ming, Evergreen, Maersk Line and CMA CGM) and handles nearly 1.5 million metric tons of cargo each year. In April, 2017, Conley will welcome five additional container lines – Hapag-Lloyd, NYK, MOL, OOCL and APL – as new customers.

Located in South Boston, Conley Terminal moves New England’s goods to market with speed and efficiency, ensuring that the region’s 14 million consumers have the products they need, when they need them. Ongoing investments in equipment, dock improvements and approximately $350 million investment in dredging will ensure that Conley Terminal remains competitive in the future.
